in C.E., Middle East Technical University. In this study, one of the moderately damaged six-storey building is selected and analyzed by performing code static (elastic) analysis, code dynamic analysis and capacity spectrum analysis after. A significant number of old unreinforced load-bearing masonry (URM) buildings exist in many countries worldwide, but especially in Europe.

In particular, Bosnia and Herzegovina has an important stock of masonry buildings constructed from the s until the s without application of any seismic code, due to their nonexistence at that by: 3.

The standard presents a three-tiered process for seismic evaluation according to a range of building performance levels by connecting targeted structural performance and the performance of nonstructural components with seismic hazard levels. The deficiency-based procedures allow evaluation and retrofit efforts to focus on specific potential deficiencies deemed to be of concern for a specified set of building types.

In the paper, a practice-oriented procedure for the seismic evaluation of building structures, based on the N2 method, is presented, together with the application of this method to an existing multi-storey reinforced concrete building. This building, which is asymmetric in plan and irregular in elevation, consists of structural walls and frames.

It was designed in for gravity loads Cited by: The book adopts a step-by-step approach, starting from the fundamentals of structural dynamics to application of seismic codes in analysis and design of structures.

The text also focusses on seismic evaluation and retrofitting of reinforced concrete and masonry buildings. The guidelines provide methods for two levels of assessment. Initial Seismic Assessment (ISA) provides a broad indication of the likely level of seismic performance of a building.

In some cases, an ISA will be followed by a more comprehensive Detailed Seismic Assessment (DSA). The Response Spectrum analysis procedure is applied for the evaluation of existing design of a reinforced concrete bare frame, frame with infill and frame with infill and soil effect.

In methodology for seismic evaluation of existing multistory residential buildings book to examine the performance of these models, the Response Spectrum analysis for seismic evaluation of existing buildings is performed.

Abstract. Seismic Evaluation of Existing Buildings provides a three-tiered process for seismic evaluation of existing buildings to either the Life Safety or Immediate Occupancy Performance Level. Design professionals will learn how to determine whether a building is adequately designed and constructed to resist seismic forces.

United States: one of the first codes, which explicitly addressed the seismic evaluation methodology of existing buildings, was ATC (ATC, ). This standard presented a method to guide practitioners in assessing existing buildings to identify potential seismic deficiencies and vulnerabilities.

This standard updates and replaces the previous Standard ASCE/SEISeismic Rehabilitation of Existing Buildings, as well as Standard ASCE/SEISeismic Evaluation of Existing Buildings.

Standard ASCE/SEI serves structural engineers, design professionals, code officials, and building owners interested in improving the seismic.

Standard ASCE/SEI is a primary reference for structural engineers addressing the seismic resilience of existing buildings and for building code officials reviewing such work; it also will be of interest to architects, construction managers, academic researchers, and building owners.

The first residential settlements built after the Second World War were multi-storey buildings with brick walls as structural elements and slabs made of prefabricated constructive components [1]. Mass construction of the 60s, 70s and 80s of the last century was marked by reinforced concrete walls as structural systems and slabs.

Proposed methodology is explained on the example of two buildings with the explanation of performed strengthening methods. The construction price of retrofitted buildings is compared to the price of demolishing the existing and building a new building.

Introduction to Seismic Retrofitting Techniques. Earthquake creates great devastation in terms of life, money and failures of structures.

Upgrading of certain building systems (existing structures) to make them more resistant to seismic activity (earthquake resistance) is really of more : Akinogun. The method was applied to an old masonry building from the city of Lisbon that includes a three-dimensional timber structure enclosed in masonry walls aimed at providing seismic resistance.

Discussion is made regarding the advantages of the iterative procedure for the identification of the expected structural collapse mechanism of old masonry Cited by: A methodology is presented in the user documentation for evaluating the need to upgrade existing buildings by identifying items requiring strengthening or repair, and then by verifying the adequacy of rehabilitation.

This evaluation is given in terms of the behavior of the critical structural elements in a building. Seismic Evaluation and Retrofit of Existing Buildings, American Society of Civil Engineers and Structural Engineering Institute (ASCE and SEI), Reston, Virginia, USA.

ATC (). Seismic Evaluation of Older Concrete Frame Buildings for Collapse Potential, Applied Technology Council (ATC), Redwood City, California, USA FEMA P (). Seismic hazard levels lower than those for design of new buildings have been permitted for seismic evaluation and retrofit of existing buildings due to the relatively short remaining lifespans.

The seismic hazard reduction enables cost-effective seismic evaluation and retrofit of existing buildings with limited structural capacity.

The current study proposes seismic hazard reduction factors Author: Ji-Hun Park. Different methods for seismic evaluation of existing buildings have developed in various countries.

Most of the methods follow three level assessment procedures. (ASCE, ) (a) Phase-I: Rapid visual screening, (b) Phase-II: Preliminary assessment, and (c) Phase-III: Detailed evaluation. Detailed seismic vulnerability evaluation is a technically. seismic evaluation of buildings which can be applied consistently to a rather wide range of buildings.

Though not applicable to all building types, the document also discusses some cost-effective strengthening schemes for existing older buildings identified as seismically deficient during the evaluation Size: 1MB. In Seismic Evaluation and Retrofit of Existing Buildings, Standard ASCE/SEIa three-tiered process is established for seismic evaluation according to a range of building performance levels.

Tier 1 evaluation focuses on identifying potential deficiencies in existing buildings based on the performance of similar buildings in past earthquakes. ATC A Methodology for the Seismic Evaluation of Existing Buildings. A new method for evaluating the seismic resistance of existing buildings has been developed based on the historic performance of buildings in past major earthquakes.

This methodology identifies the specific 'weak links' in a building that can cause life-threatening damage while taking into account the strength of all Cited by: 1.

The following persons contributed to this document. The seismic evaluation of existing buildings is a more difficult task than the seismic design of new buildings.

Non-linear methods are needed if realistic results are to be obtained. However, the application to real complex structures of various evaluation procedures, which have usually been tested on highly idealized structural models, is by / existing buildings include: Uniform Code for Building Conservation (UCBC, ), Los Angeles Divis Los Angeles Divis and Seismic Evaluation and Retrofit of Concrete Buildings.

Some users have based the seismic evaluation of buildings on the provisions of new buildings. While this may seem appropriate, it must be done with full. Design Loads for Residential Buildings General Loads are a primary consideration in any building design because they define the nature and magnitude of hazards or external forces that a building must resist to provide reasonable performance (i.e., safety and File Size: 2MB.

• Refurbishment of a building constructed in the ’s to create large open spaces for a high quality office building in one of the most prestigious districts in Paris • The project involved preservation of the existing façades of the building, which imposed a constraint on the method of building.

This report is the first step in preparing a change to the tri-services manual TMSeismic Design for Buildings. Changes in this manual are necessary to provide guidance for the design of critical military facilities which must remain functional after subjection to strong earthquakes.
